Escalation at the San Diego Zoo

Filed under: San Diego Zoo — Tags: , , , — washaw @ 6:00 am

My wife and I wear our pedometers when visiting either the Zoo or Wild Animal Park.   But the Zoo has some pretty steep canyons and riding the escalator back up to the top usually provides a needed break.  We make up the missed steps on level ground.  🙂  

The zoo escalators are pretty long but no where near a record.  The longest single-span uninterrupted escalator in the Western Hemisphere is at the Wheaton station of the Washington Metro system (230 feet long, 2 min 45 sec ride time).  I have actually taken the third longest ride, the one at Rosslyn station (205 ft 8 in).
